Mass and snow

My day today consisted of two things repeated: Mass and snow. I served Mass this morning (a family Mass, which is never my favourite since liturgy is curtailed in favour of a focus on children*), trudging to snow, trudging some more through snow, get out of the snow to blog a bit, trudge some more through snow, another Mass (the first student Mass of the new year), and finally, I expect, some more trudging through snow.

I am quite done with this winter, actually.

Here’s a photo of Father Jozef Okonek in the distance, singing the Pater Noster at the Latin Mass.

*I have nothing against children, obviously, and I welcome attempts to get them involved with the Mass. I just don’t think the second reading should be skipped for it, and the less people in the sacntuary, the better. Weighing the pros and cons, I fail to see the merit of these family Masses.
